Abstract

The problem of the growth of the corruption threat in contemporary Russian society is considered in the article from the position of socio-philosophical knowledge. The initial methodological premise of the study of the corruption phenomenon is the identification of its nature and essence as a negative social fact associated with socio-cultural and socio-psychological processes and factors that affect the worldview of people, their behavior, interaction with each other, their attitude to life, society, and the world. Socio-psychological phenomena are determined among the major factors of the corruption growth in public life (selfishness, egoism, self-interest, a sense of superiority, immoderate consumerism, and acquisitiveness), as well as socio-cultural conditions, the most important of which are social inequality, strong social stratification, technization and human automation, commercialization, and virtualization of the world. Particular importance is given to the existing social alienation in society and a certain moral of the corruption worldview, corruption ideology when comprehending corruption foundations and the behavior of an atomic social subject. Specific attention is paid to the disclosure of this phenomenon in the context of a corrupt or criminal subculture. Priority areas of counteraction against a destructive model of behavior in Russian society are determined in accordance with the position taken in understanding corruption as a model and means of behavior, by dint of which an individual aims at solving certain issues and realizing his or someone’s interests.
